Pete Waterman marks Welsh Highland railway completion


The final section of track has been laid for the steam trains that run on the Welsh Highland Railway.

The service began taking passengers through Snowdonia 175 years ago.

The revival of the railway as a tourist attraction began more than 60 years ago and the dedication of generations of steam lovers has made it a real success.

Music producer and railway enthusiast Pete Waterman unveiled a milestone to mark the completion of the UK's longest heritage railway, from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
